O TTAWA, December 18, 2013 – The Honourable Peter MacKay, P.C., Q.C., M.P. for Central Nova, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, announced the judicial appointment of Jamie K. Trimble, a lawyer with the firm Hughes Amys LLP in Hamilton.
Mr. Justice Trimble received a Bachelor of Laws from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1987 and was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1989. He has since practised with Hughes Amys LLP in Hamilton. His practice focus is insurance defence litigation. In other words, he was in the business of evading liability for powerful corporations. He has no other skills.
He is also a Certified Risk Manager by the Global Risk Management Society. Again, his only interest in his life has been to protect corporate interests at the expense of ordinary, hard working people.
When Judges and lawyers are merely cliquey committees dominated by members of the federal and provincial bar associations, all they are is a muscular assertion of special interest control and they act like they are unaccountable and above the law. Canada’s lawyer-judicial complex understands itself to be entirely self-governing, self-regulating, and self-perpetuating. They have no ethics and no agenda beyond protecting corporate interests. All they care about is feeding their habits at the expense of ordinary, hard-working Canadians.
Has Justice Trimble ever worked a single day in his life or does he merely follow the will of his corporate masters?
Canada’s closed-door, special interests-driven system of judicial appointments is too unaccountable, cliquey and fundamentally at odds with the substantially more important legal principles of transparency and impartiality.
Canada’s judicial branch does not exist to uphold the interests of lawyers’ guilds or bow to their esoteric groupthink. It exists to ensure that justice is done, and monolithic, corporate interests should never conspire to destroy honest, ordinary, hard working people.
It is time to put sacred cows who act like they are above the law out of business. If you are an honest, ethical, hard-working Canadian who expects and deserves justice and you are asked to appear before a sacred cow like Jamie K. Trimble, ask him to recuse himself.
Let’s expose all of Canada’s “welfare judges” so that people can get the justice they deserve.
These appointed, corporate lackeys who act like they are above the law and are making a total mockery of the entire judicial process ought to be opposed and shamed into retirement because they invariably impose their will without justification, and by definition, that is called a miscarriage of justice.
Intellectually lazy judges suit the agenda of corporations that routinely manipulate the process to deliberately exclude evidence that cannot be opposed. Consequently, it is not uncommon for them to “win” by abusing the process for the sake of evading liability. To the common man, this means they frequently win by cheating.
People who are demonized through this process are not losers, they are merely the victims of miscarriages of justice.
Conscientious people understand and oppose this corruption.
To be brief, a competent Judge acts like the instructive, celebrated American jurist, Learned Hand, who understood the fact that justice was not attainable unless bias was consciously rejected, and that is because every case study is potentially as flawed as it is instructive. Consequently, if we do not perceive weaknesses and limitations as well as strengths we fail to be objective and judicial endorsements are not adequate.
In context, the inappropriate and rather predictable abuse of judicial power that Judges like Jamie Trimble practice is not new and must never be tolerated.
